The cosmetic business has very little regulation on ingredients. Out of all the thousands of components used on one product, only a few of them are being regulated. As a result, as long as they list those products, they could then put anything else, granted that are not considered poisonous!
Even if you are someone who does not use any makeup, your beauty habits should be thoroughly examined if you want to remove all the toxins from your body and go for a healthier option. For this reason, you need to consider everything that you put on your body.
Here is our post on the ‘20+ Ways to Detoxify Your Beauty Habits’!
One easy way to detoxify harsh ingredients that your skin must deal is to use natural washing detergents. There are very few of them in store, but they help our skin in dealing with harsh ingredients from our clothes.
